Scrap the Girls September DT Reveal

Hi there!

I am super excited to be sharing my first design team layout for Scrap the Girls!!! I have loved joining in with the challenges at Scrap the Girls for a long time and so I am over the moon to now be part of the talented group of ladies on the design team!

This month we have a lovely sketch to get you inspired:

I really liked this sketch because it got me thinking outside the box! I also love how the design team have each interpreted the sketch quite differently and come up with such unique layouts - each fabulous in its own way!

Here is my take on the sketch:

The first thing I started with for this layout was the project life card that says 'A laugh is a smile that bursts'. I chose this photo of my little Eleanor at 6 1/2 months old because I thought it was just perfect for that quote!

I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe to cut out the roses on my Silhouette and then I painted them with watercolour paints, matching the colours to the Project Life cards. I really love how this turned out!

Here are some closeups of my layout:

Here you can see the beautiful gold foil on the PL card - it is so pretty!! Next to the photo I've included two flowers from D-lish Scraps.

In this little cluster on the left hand side of my layout I've included a journal spot, flair and resin flower, all from D-lish Scraps.

A closeup of the top half of my layout.

And one final closeup of one of the roses at the bottom.

If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Scrap the Girls blog and take a look at the amazing layouts that my fellow design team members have created with this sketch! We would love you to join us by creating a layout inspired by this sketch and linking it up on the Scrap the Girls blog by 30th September to be in the running to win one of 4 awesome prizes from our sponsor Fiskars!

Thank you for taking the time to visit and for your lovely comments also! I will be back later today with my design team reveal for Stuck?! Sketches!
